Agents of SHIELD made its return to TV screens last night for its third season, and our first impression is that it's already a much-improved show. But there's always room for a second --- or third --- opinion, so we're kicking off a brand new format for Agents of Something, our regular post-show analysis of the latest Agents of SHIELD episode.
We've invited two CA contributors, Ziah Grace and Chris Haley, to share their thoughts about the show. Neither of them have been keeping up with the agents 'til now, so they'll offer a fresh new perspective, and they'll probably have quite a few questions...
The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones already upped the inter-connectivity of Netflix’s four Defenders by the inclusion of Daredevil characters and Luke Cage himself, and it seems Mike Colter’s Hero-for-Hire will return the favor. Jessica Jones baddie David Tennant has been spotted filming Luke Cage scenes as Zebediah Kilgrave, but what does it mean for the so-called “Purple Man”?
Last year, Good Smile released a trio of Avengers figures based on the 2012 film, The Avengers. While Iron Man, Captain America and Thor made some impressive (and expensive) Figmas, it seemed as if the line would end with just those three holding down the fort. Now, more than a year after those figures were announced, Good Smile is back with what could be the largest Figma ever produced to date.
The Avengers Movie Hulk Figma isn't exactly a timely release. The character's look has changed ever so slightly in the years since that film debuted, and there are plenty of Avengers: Age of Ultron versions currently still available. However, this Hulk is part of the Figma brand, which brings its own fanbase along with it. Additionally, even though the other Avenger Figmas also arrived a few years after the film, they were still rather popular. That's what happens when you have a history of strong sculpts, great articulation and a decent amount of accessories (when applicable).
Marvel’s Netflix Jessica Jones took her sweet time in delivering actual photos from the forthcoming Defenders series, but ahead of the cast’s arrival at New York Comic-Con 2015, we finally have our first footage. A new Jessica Jones teaser shows the down-and-out superheroine displaying her super-strength, and boy, does she hate alarm clocks.
Marvel’s Agent Carter proved endlessly stylish as Peggy kicked bad guys all up and down the East Coast, but with a move to Los Angeles on the horizon, the SSR’s best gal needs some warmer wardrobe. Ditch the hat, but keep the gun, Peggy’s on the prowl in a new Agent Carter Season 2 poster.
Entertainment Weekly debuted a first look at the new Season 2 key art, in advance of the Captain America spinoff’s presence at New York Comic-Con 2015. And while there isn’t very much to gleam from Peggy’s stylish pose, those in attendance of NYCC itself can pick up a copy of the poster at the Marvel booth (#1354).
Production is officially underway on Marvel’s Netflix Luke Cage, and the hero-for-hire has hit the streets to film scenes for his post-Jessica Jones return. See what Wire alum has joined the cast, and get a first look at the big baddies before Luke Cage officially arrives on Netflix next year!
The Diamond Retailer Summit is underway in Baltimore this weekend, timed to coincide with Baltimore Comic Con, and Marvel has taken the opportunity to unveil more new titles for the All-New All-Different line relaunch, including ongoing series for two former West Coast Avengers, Moon Knight and Mockingbird.
